Tips for the Immanence submissions guidelines when using MS Word. Screenshots are from MS Word 2007 and 2010.

Tip 1: Setting up footnotes 

  • Do not set this up unless you are inserting at least one footnote.
  • First, format your footnotes. To do this, click on the References tab at the top, then the click on the diagonal arrow to the right of “Footnotes” as below:

This will open the following popup. Correct the fields highlighted to what is showing by using the arrows or dropdowns highlighted. Then click “Apply”.

On the page with the first footnote place your curser after the word (with no space) or sentence (after the closing punctuation) your footnote applies to. On the References tab click Insert Footnote as below:

After you click this, at the footnote number at the bottom of the page type in the text you want for that footnote. Repeat for any additional footnotes, going in order through the document. The example below has two footnotes:

You may then have to change the text in your footnotes to the font in your document.

Click on the diagonal arrow to the right of “Paragraph” and this popup should come up:

If you leave the highlighted settings as above, paragraphs will have additional space between them. Instead you want to:

  • Click on the down arrow in the “After” field above. Click until it shows 0  pt (not Auto) as it does in the “Before” field (if the “Before field is other than 0 pt click the down arrow there until it is at 0 also).
  • Click on the arrow next to the “Multiple” field and change it to “Double.”
  • In the “At” field backspace through any numbers there until it is blank. It should now look like this:

Click OK to update your settings.

That brings up the a menu. Click “None.”
